  • Argentina is easy favorite, but who else will advance from Group D? FWC: Argentina is easy favorite, but who else will advance from Group D?

    The skinny: The world may be watching and cheering for Iceland, and if it is, it’s likely to nod off while doing so. Because while Iceland has the tournament’s most compelling backstory, it also has a plodding, unattractive style of play that puts as many as 10 men behind the ball. The attack is often limited to cautious counterattacks and…

  • Wonder Woman sequel gets title, plus see the surprising first set photos FWC: Wonder Woman sequel gets title, plus see the surprising first set photos

    Gone are the days of sequels being titled in sequential order, as the title-colon-ominous-promise-of-epic-stakes (see: Avengers: Infinity War, How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World) has more or less become commonplace. Wonder Woman, the crown jewel of the DC Extended Universe, is switching things up at least a little bit for its upcoming sequel, which, we now know, will be…

  • Practice makes perfect FWC: Practice makes perfect

    Germany has the deepest squad in the tournament, but it faces several questions regarding injuries. Coach Joachim Low said goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, who has not played a competitive match since fracturing a foot in September, will be his starter in Russia.

    Back in March, Billy McFarland pled guilty to two counts of federal wire fraud in connection to the Fyre Festival scandal. He’s also had to come up with $26 million to repay those festival investors he defrauded. However, it appears Fyre Festival wasn’t the only criminal enterprise McFarland was operating. According to the Manhattan US Attorney’s office (via Pitchfork), he was also preying…

  • Group G preview: The party is just beginning for World Cup debutante Panama FWC: Group G preview: The party is just beginning for World Cup debutante Panama

    But although the Central Americans will field one of the oldest teams in the World Cup, they are also bringing some youth with them in defender Fidel Escobar, 23, midfielder Edgar Barcenas, 24, and forward Abdiel Arroyo, 24, who joined the team after the last World Cup cycle.

  • World Cup Group B preview: Cristiano Ronaldo and Portugal have a pretty clear path to advance FWC: World Cup Group B preview: Cristiano Ronaldo and Portugal have a pretty clear path to advance

    The skinny: Like Portugal, Spain is either old or experienced, depending on your point of view. Four of its starters — Pique, Iniesta, Sergio Ramos and Sergio Busquets — also started for Spain’s title-winning team in 2010. Spain still plays the same possession-oriented, short-passing game the 2010 team perfected. Because of that the midfield can dominate games, but Spain appears…
